Craniosacral Therapy:

What Is craniosacral therapy?

Craniosacral therapy is a hands-on therapeutic bodywork that focuses on soft-tissue structures and flow of cerebrospinal fluid from the head to the base of the spine. These structures and fluids protect and nourish the brain and spinal cord.

Through supporting the central nervous system, craniosacral therapy seeks to relieve stress that contributes to chronic pain, muscular and skeletal imbalance, and other common ailments.

Craniosacral therapy is particularly suited to support adults and children with:

  • Anxiety and depression

  • Chronic neck and back pain

  • Headaches, including migraines

  • Jaw issues

  • Stress and tension-related disorders

  • And many other conditions

This work is also beneficial for women during pregnancy and post-partum, particularly for those with low back, sacro-iliac, and hip pain.
